Il Borgetti is two newly restored old houses with spectacular 300 degree views of the Sibelline mountains, fields, hills and medieval hilltop villages. They stand close to each other in an utterly tranquil position and surrounded by 30 acres of gardens, fields and fruit trees.
Each has been equipped and decorated to a high standard with good quality furniture, original art and well equipped kitchens and bathrooms.
There are outside terraces with teak dining furniture for al fresco dining.
There is a huge new pool (14m x 6m) with terraces, sun loungers and wonderful views. There are no other houses around and yet it is only 10 minutes drive to medieval Sarnano with its shops, spa and restaurants.
There is almost too much to do in the surrounding area - the famous Sibelline National Park, riding, paragliding, Roman remains and art.
It is possible to rent one of the houses by itself on an exclusive basis and with private pool, so you can have the whole place to yourselves. Please see the entry for 'Casa Luisa'.
